At Boston College, we are committed to understanding the science that governs the harvesting and storage of solar energy. Our research efforts are guided by the insights that the best way to store solar energy is through the formation and breaking of chemical bonds. We are also inspired by natural photosynthesis, which provides the source to meet the majority of our energy needs through fossil fuels and renewal ones.
Ongoing projects in our lab include solar fuel synthesis, through which solar energy is directly harvested and stored. These efforts are currently funded by the National Science Foundation (CBET program) and the Department of Energy (EERE), as well as through MassCEC. We also have a project focused on developing next generation batteries, such as metal oxygen batteries.
